  • Hi @SarahBurdette - Yes, one way to deposit money into your crew bank account is to transfer it from CrewMates / donor account. It's really simple to do in the online crew account. Hope that helps!
  • Hello @HannahRadford, @DarleneGehman, @NelsonMbunua - For most medical positions, scheduling is taking place currently and we should be sending information to applicants over the course of the next month and a half. For the non-medical positions…
  • @SarahBurdette - I hope you enjoy your time on board!
  • Hi @JANETCWEST - I'm sorry you're having that issue! Yes - the password/login information is different. myMercy will be a personal email address with a password of your choosing. Navigator (and all internal Mercy Ships systems you might have acc…
  • Hi @CalineSlootmaekers - it looks like there are actually 13 other people arriving on the same flight as you! You should have access to Navigator (Mercy Ships intranet) at this point and you can click here if you would like to see their names so you…
  • Hi @EddieHulon , I see your application was successfully submitted! You should hear from your Placement Facilitator, Brianna Tucker, in the next few days. You can check your status, send a message to Brianna, or complete any outstanding tasks anytim…
  • Hi @bscharrn, it looks like you completed your scheduling survey for Senegal, which is great! Leadership on board have started making their draft schedules at this time, so we anticipate communicating scheduling decisions sometime next month. In t…
  • Hi Joseph, it looks like your application was submitted successfully! Your Placement Facilitator, Rachel-Elise Cairncross, should send you a message by the end of the week outlining the next steps. You can login to the application portal at apply.me…
  • Hi Anna, I have not personally flown Emirates, but some of our crew does! As long as you're looking at this flight:  * Arrival: Emirates Airlines 797 at 13:30 * Departure: Emirates Airlines 797 at 15:10 You should be fine. Those are in our cur…
  • Hi Joseph Park‍,  Sorry, I clearly missed this! By using the discount, you will have access to the Global Humanitarian program, with access to discounted, unrestricted, flexible, and refundable fares to and from Conakry via Brussels. You can combi…
  • Hello Elizabeth, Every insurance policy is different - so unless it specifically stated you have guaranteed coverage overseas, I do not think it would cover you. We do recommend Talent Trust Consultants (TTc) and a few others:   * Talent Trust Co…
  • Brittany, I hope you have an amazing time on board! I first went at 18 years old - and our communication systems have only improved since then
  • Wow, what a history! Looking forward to you joining. Let us know if we can do anything for you! 
  • Hi Eileen, I see this hasn't been responded to yet - sorry about that! Hopefully I can help point you in the right direction. FNPs would qualify for the any nursing position on board, but are particularly sought after for the Crew Nurse, Nurse E…
  • Hi George, Thanks for your comments! We don't typically post the future locations until closer to the time of that particular field service, just because things can change in the (now) 10 months until the next field service. We are planning to be …
  • Hi Kaylynn, Great questions! Have you seen this packing list?  No, you don't need to bring sheets or a pillow unless you want to bring your own.  At On Boarding your bedding and towels are also provided. Have you gotten the information about On …
  • Hi Marilyn,  We recently received more details about the team house situation in Cameroon! Your Placement Facilitator should have communicated this to you already, but in case not -  I've attached a site map where you can see the location of the t…
  • Hi Will, Great list! I honestly can't think of anything you're missing, but you may want to bring one more pair of pants and/or shorts. Other than that, what you have so far is great, and anything else you might need is likely to be found at Pier …
  • Hi Mohamed, Thanks for joining myMercy! We do have nursing opportunities on board for ICU nurses. Unfortunately, while we do have some teaching/mentoring roles, we do not have any education courses on diabetes. That being said, we hope to accommod…
  • Katie, Good questions... sorry it's been confusing! Crew fees cover your room and food on board, and for short term crew it also covers your emergency evacuation and repatriation insurance. On the budget, it's more than just Mercy Ships-expenses. …
  • Hi Gabrielle,  I haven't seen those documents come through - can you let me know where (or to whom) they were sent so I can investigate further?  Also - when are you available? I see you were pre-qualified as a Cook back in January, and we do have…
  • I hope you have a great time on board!
  • Hi Jordan! I see you have been pre-qualified for our candidate pool! You should have gotten an email from our Medical Recruiter when we started staffing for Cameroon (August 2017-May 2018). Did you get this, and if so, did you reply? Let me look i…
  • Hi Lauren, We've been a bit short staffed here the last few months, but we'll make sure you get an update today! Thank you for your patience!
  • Hi there! We're so glad to hear you have applied! For now, the Third Officer role has been filled, but we do have a huge need for a Third Engineer at the moment (and the future!). Let's see if we can get one of the current engineers to give you a …
